This has to be an intentional wink from Stallone and his contemporaries. They know their days are not only numbered as action stars, but probably should have ended long ago. It's no longer just about old-school smashmouth displays of force in today's actioners. Tech-savviness is the new black. As crazy as this sounds, this isn't a hypothesis crafted from thin air; it's actually the plot of “The Expendables III."
